16.10.2013 We will be able to offer homework correction. If you would like to have your solutions corrected you can turn them in during the tutorial classes (preferably) or in the mail box in the basement of the math building by Thursday noon, the week the exercises are discussed in class. We will return comments during tutorial classes of the following week. Please note that we share the mail box with another course, so please make sure to put your name, tutorial group, as well as the name of the class (Numerics of PDEs) on your solutions.
16.10.2013 Exercise classes on Tuesdays will start 15 minutes earlier at 2 pm.
The description of the module (3303) can be found here.
